We encourage our students at Scoil Maelruain Junior to get involved in activities outside of school. Involvement in a local club is most likely to encourage lifelong participation in a sport or activity.

Soccer Swimming, GAA, Creative Dance and Gymnastics are amongst the options locally.
Our students get a taste for these activities in their PE lessons and during Get Active Week. This variety of activities allows each child to find something active that suits them and their personal interests!
